The end or just the beginning? a journal entry by Linda Young
I was several hours from home one weekend recently when I looked out the window from where I was eating dinner and saw these trash containers. Thoughts crossed my mind about how this restaurant processed the waste. Then, on our way home, I saw a train full of garbage containers which must have been a mile long and wondered where they were headed to and what was to become of what was inside. Was it the end of the line at a dumping site for the garbage inside them? Was it just the beginning of a spiral called garbage that is spinning out of control?
